Mom ‘poured petrol into eight-year-old son’s mouth and burned him alive’

A mom is alleged to have poured petrol into her eight-year-old son’s mouth and then burned him alive after he told her husband she had another lover.

The boy died in hospital in Kursk, Russia, after suffering horrific 45 percent burns.



Anastasia Baulina, 31, a cashier, was furious that he “betrayed” her by telling his stepfather that she had been visited by her alleged lover, reports claim.

She had a “quarrel” with her son Andrey and took him into the courtyard, where she doused him in fuel from a canister, then set the youngster on fire, it is alleged.

One report said she poured the fuel into the terrified boy’s mouth before using a lighter and telling him: “Let’s see how it will burn.”

His sister Natasha, 12, said: “(The fuel) was pouring into his mouth, as he was crying.”

Andrey's sister reportedly fled in terror.

As the girl fled in terror, the mother and stepfather Pavel Baulin, 35, a farmworker, put out the flames and called an ambulance.

But the boy was critically injured and he died two days later from severe burns.

A murder investigation was opened and the woman - from Zheleznogorsk district - was detained.

A neighbor, Nina Chetverikova, told Life: ”I saw her at the bus stop.

“She had a quarrel with her husband.

“It seems she took it out on her children.”

Baulina faces up to 20 years in jail if convicted.

A criminal investigation was also opened into why the boy was allowed back into his mother’s care after he was previously taken away from her to an orphanage.
